Thank you so much!
Since I'm having a similar camp themed 'an uninhabited island', your idea and materials will be a lot of help. Happy new year and thank you again!

Yes, will upload PPTs later this afternoon. I was hoping to get one of my cool teachers to translate stuff to Korean, but they are not coming in this week by what I can tell.

Yay! Glad it can help someone

Ok, so day 1 didn't go too badly.

The boat race was fun although some of my kids had boats that didn't float, so there wasn't much of a race for that pair.

For airplane toss, I placed the flashcards on the floor and said that the person whose plane lands closest to the flashcard that I say wins the round. There was a bit of confusion because some people thought they should win if their plane hits the flashcard directly but then goes off way into the distance whereas the other person's plane lands closest to flashcard but doesn't actually touch it. Overall, they enjoyed this.

Slap the desk took 3 rounds before they understood how to play. Once they understood, they didn't want to stop playing and kept asking for one more round. Thank you Vietnam for teaching me this awesome game.

Direct the blind man I decided to make less competitive as I only had 1 blind fold. So only sent one kid into the arena at a time and everyone got candy once they were across. They ended up cheating by switching to Korean every now and then, but they really loved it. I even did one round where I was blindfolded and they had to direct me.

The Mario game was not well received. I don't know if its because we played it after Direct the Blind man, so maybe they were all hyped up and then it was an anti climax to go to a board game. I ended this game early and just decided to play Jenga with them until the time was up, as their lack of focus on the game was draining.

Attached is the PPT for Day 2

Day 2 was great...

The marshmallow catapult is awesome...was such a fun activity and I highly recommend doing it.

The origami worked well. I couldn't quite get my frog didn't jump, and others struggled as well, but 2 of the girls managed to get theirs to jump. I did the talking dog as well and I loved it, the best of the 3 in my opinion (if you are willing to get silly and talk in a dog voice haha), and so simple.

I didn't do the whisper challenge as I ran out of kids got competitive with Chicken Cha Cha and I also had to cut the day short by 30 minutes as the teachers that are at school were having lunch with vice principal.

I did notice a mistake with the sentence of the sentences is "they are riding a boat", which I ended up taking out of the lesson plan because I know there is debate amongst teachers about whether this is the correct language  (they are riding a boat vs they are riding on a boat etc). They this is in the wrap up but I hadn't actually taught it to them

Attached is the short PPT (I got a bit lazy) for Day 3 and the blockbuster dice for day 4
